welker, thank you, on the trail. >>> and now, in boston, after a sad night there, the question what went wrong in the romney campaign. peter alexander covering, there for us tonight. peter, good evening. >> reporter: brian, good evening to you here in boston, this is apparently the intersection of politics and the nor'easter, in the words of one top aide to the romney campaign tonight. the mood in the campaign is a lot like this weather, dreary, at the end of a six-year long quest for the white house. tonight, mitt romney is left asking himself what might have been. dressed in a business suit and surrounded by family and friends, and for a final few hours, a secret service team, mitt romney this morning left his boston hotel, quickly returning to life as a private citizen. on this november 7th, the day governor romney promised voters he would get to work, the only campaign work left to do, packing up, and tearing down. just before 9:00 this morning, almost 90 minutes after most networks had called the race, mr. romney took the stage alone. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left eve
lost the election. >> reporter: this is what mitt romney faced when he awoke this morning in boston. freezing temperatures, gray skies, the stark reality that his dream of being president was over. we've learned right after romney made his concession speech, he made an unexpected decision to stay overnight at the westin hotel. >> it's a moving target when you work with the secret service. we did not expect the romney family to be staying overnight. >> reporter: his reporters left trying to figure out how the republicans win next time. >> the republican party needs to get they're house in order. stay out of people's private lives. leave women alone. >> reporter: the winner here was boston. the head of the convention and visiter's bureau told us boston came out at least $20 million richer, thanks to the romney campaign. 50 rooms just for his family and staff here. other hotels also at capacity. taxis and restaurants full. even the airports saw double the usual number of private jets. >> boston officials saying having the former governor of massachusetts here on election night was a go

in the westin hotel in boston last night. boston came out at least $20 million richer thanks to the romney campaign, nearly making up for the cancelations from storm sandy. here, the democrats gained seats in the legislature and for the first time in 80 years, the democrats will hold a super majority in the state assembly. that means that california minority republicans will have no real power to block insulations. one measure that could come up would be passage of a measure to legalize same sex marriage. senator stein berg says that there's no plan to raise taxes, which republicans say were there number one dinner. >>> following the presidential election, nasdaq fell 74, e.u. leaders scaled back on estimates on growth for next year. >>> in greece, hundreds of protesters clashed with police as the country's parliament prepares to vote on a package of spending cuts. a 48 hour strike is underway with banks, schools, and public offices closed. the prime minister is calling for pensions and holiday hours to be cut, in order to keep receiving bailout funds. >>> with the election behind us, wall
, what went wrong and where do we go from here? fox's carl cameron has that story from boston. >> reporter: mitt romney's family surrounded him on stage after he graciously conceded a defeat he did not see coming. >> i so wished, i so wished that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction. >> reporter: there were weaknesses in romney's run and the president exploit them. perhaps the low point for romney was the surreptitiously videoed 47% remark. romney did not match democratic attack ads over the summer designed to negatively define his business career and it took a toll. in his self-described must win state of ohio romney's loss was in no small measure due to a show response to democratic attacks on his opposition to the auto bailout. the romney camp admits underestimating the president's organization and support. >> reporter: romney's defeat has already started the gop talk about better courting the minority polls. romney got clobbered 82% obama on latinos. the president carried women 54- 44 and among younger voters obama won 60% t
and is live in boston now. we are already seeing some monday morning quarterbacking. what a shock. >> sure. when a party loses, this is what happens. it happened back in 2008 when john mccain lost. the republic party looked close at itself and now it's doing the same thing in the wake of mitt romney's defeat. it doesn't take much to understand why look at the numbers in key constituencies where republicans were facing uphill climb mr. romney did not do particularly well he got blown out with latino voters. mr. obama beating mr. romney with latino voters. women's vote. disadvantage for the g.o.p. continues. there you see again mr. obama with a commanding advantage over mr. romney. and lastly the youth vote. mitt romney's campaign didn't spend a lot of time courting these constituencies tried on occasions but it wasn't the overall focus of how they did it as opposed to the president's campaign which microtargetted. county by county, neighborhood by neighborhood. street by street and picked up these votes. and as a consequence. in the last time back four years ago republic party moved with th

news that romney was, quote, shell-shocked when he realized he lost. "the boston globe" said the campaign had planned a big fireworks show to celebrate the victo victory. for a few moments, it was actually online and really to go. and it includes plans for the inauguration. and it says he's working on a smooth transfer of power. but now mid romney is a private citiz citizen. he doesn't have secret service protection. the campaign aides say the credit cards have been cut off and supporters say he's likely to move to his home in california. i think he just fades, says one top donor. i think we have seen for the most part the last of mitt romney. but for the party he's leaving behind, the debate is just beginning. does the gop adapt, or does it fade into relevance? is this the party of lincoln or the party of rush limbaugh. joining me is megan mccain, columnist for "the daily beast and msnbc contributor. on election night she tweeted, quote, my party has to evolve or it's gooding to die. hogan go aheadly, he's worked for both rick santorum and mike huckabee. thank you both for j

soul searching about the future of the party. as romney said good-bye to campaign staff at his boston headquarters yesterday, republican recriminations were already in full swing. one member of the campaign's finance committee told "the washington post," "everybody feels like they were a bunch of well meaning folks who were to use a phrase that governor romney coined to describe his opponent -- way in over their heads." plenty more republicans were more than willing to go on the record. >> the romney campaign did nothing -- zero -- nothing -- in the last few days to jump-start the governor. >> after that first debate, i don't know where that mitt romney went. i mean in the summertime, he was raising a lot of money and he was on lake winnipesaukee, he was having fun on the jet ski. >> when conservative commentator ann coulter defended romney, ingraham incredulously disagreed. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it is over. >> i'm sorry, this is going to sound cruel, but some of the times i didn't fee
